Top 5 Storage Hacks for Kids

Are you (and your feet) tired of discovering toys and clutter where they shouldn’t be? Do you struggle to find a home for children’s toys and other belongings without compromising the style of your home? Luckily, there are so many storage options these days that are both beautiful and innovative. You can say goodbye to unsightly cardboard boxes and keep the house tidy with these five clever storage solutions that are sure to complement any home!

1. Create Rolling Under-Bed Storage

Do you have some dresser drawers you no longer use? Turn them into handy under-bed storage for your child’s toys! Get creative with a fresh, fun coat of paint and some castor wheels and you’ll have a roll-out chest that keeps toys stored away out of sight, but is also easy for your kids to access come playtime.

2. Repurpose an Over-the-Door Shoe Rack

Get those pesky barbies, matchbox cars and Legos off the floor with an over-the-door shoe rack. Place the rack inside your child’s closet, using the pockets to hold dolls, toys, craft supplies or any other knickknacks you wish to keep organised and out of sight.

3. Display Books on Floating Shelves

Save space and install some floating shelves on the walls of your child’s bedroom. Perfect for neatly displaying books and ornaments, floating shelves take up less space than a traditional bookcase and double as a trendy wall decoration for your child’s room.

4. Get an Ottoman with Storage

Why have a basic ottoman when you can have a multi-purpose one that provides decent storage space? Our funky range of storage ottomans and blanket boxes come in several modern colours to suit your existing décor. Chic and stylish, these functional pieces are ideal for keeping toys and games hidden away until playtime.

5. Use Stackable Toy Boxes

Conserve floor space with open, stackable toy boxes. Perfect for bedrooms or playrooms, our stackable toy boxes keep toys, books, shoes and other goodies off the floor and are available in a range of fun colours to suit your home. If you are tired of the constant war on kids’ clutter, it’s time to get creative with our storage hacks for kids! You won’t ever have to worry again about an unsightly mess or late-night Lego injuries – just take action with our handy hints for a tidier home.
